I know my journal is a bit vapid. I think about issues all the time, but I never feel like I have an eloquent enough voice to speak on heavier issues. I wish I had a voice for advocacy and positive change, but a strong part of my personality is conflict avoidance, so I think it makes me only talk about "safe" subjects.

I have the same problem and so my journal is a mix of silence and attempts to sound interesting on some other topic. I hadn't put together that this might be to do with my own conflict avoidance. That's good food for thought. Thank you.

this absolutely describes my lj. Well, the conflict avoidance therefore don't talk about heavier stuff or really things other than me. But I'm ok with my journal being all about me. I put my advocacy energy into other places, where and when I an deal with it. It's not nearly as much as many, but it's there.
